(Lonaconing) Catherine Morgan Collins -
Yesterday morning all that is mortal of Catherine Morgan Collins was laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery at Westernport. Mrs. Collins died at her home at Rhee'sStation last Sunday. She was the widow of Dennis Collins, who died about four years ago. Deceased was born near Martinsburg, Va, March 17, 1844, and was married at Mt Savage 46 years ago. Afterwards the Collins family moved to Barton, where they lived several years and later moved to Franklin Hill, where they have live many years. Mrs. Collins leaves these sons: Daniel, William, Thomas, Joseph and Dennis. Her surviving daughters are Mrs. James Pressly, Prescott, Arizona; Mrs. Joseph Shaffer, Cumberland, Mrs. Charles McDade, Westernport. Her sisters are Mrs. Michael Dailey, Mrs. Samuel Vance, of Franklin; Mrs. Margaret Tippen and Mrs. Ann Tippen of Borden Shaft, and one brother, Thomas Morgan of Franklin. Six nephews of the deceased acted as pallbearers: Lloyd, Thomas and Patrick Dailey, of Franklin; Frank, Harry and Grover Tippen of Borden Shaft. The flower-bearers were Wm and Joseph Vance. Those who attended the funeral from other places were: Patrick O'Connor, Mt.

Father Gallagher said a solemn requiem mass, assisted by the choir, and Miss Bernadette Bell, the soloist sang two selections. Mrs. Collins was a good woman in every acceptation of the word. Kind-hearted and helpful, she was a benediction and a blessing to all who had the good fortune to know her. Her children followed in her footsteps. They are well respected and no family in Maryland has more friends than the Collins, of Rhee's Station. Many will miss the good woman who has gone to her reward. She was a devout Catholic. A consistent Christian and a good neighbor. She had remarkable memory and remembered well when the first steel rails used in the United States were made in Mt. Savage.

COMUNTZIS, N. J.

Funeral services for N. J. Comuntzis, formerly of this city, who died Friday at his apartment in the Masonic Temple, Fairmont, WV, after a brief illness, was held today. The body was buried temporarily in this country but it will be eventually taken back to Greece to rest beside the bodies of his ancestors. Mrs. Comuntzis will take her family back to Greece to reside and will take the body at that time.
Up until ten o'clock Tuesday night, Mr. Comuntis was at his place of business in Fairmont and was then suffering from a pain in his ear. The next day he was taken much worse and physicians were summoned to his aid. He was said to have the influenza. Later meningitis developed and his condition became worse very rapidly. In an effort to relieve the severe pain in his head, minor operations were performed but they failed to help him. The deceased was aged 42 years. Mr. Comuntis was an honorable, upright citizen and a shrewd businessman and during his business career here, held the confidence of all with whom he had any dealings, says the Fairmont Times. He was born in Sparta, Greece, where his father, John Communtzis, aged 75 years, and two sisters and a brother reside. He came to the United State in the year 1891 and to Fairmont in the year 1904, opening a confectionary store on Main street. Later he opened a second and larger establishment on the corner of Main and Monroe Streets, Fairmont, still maintaining the former stand. He also owned a similar business at Morgantown and a few years ago disposed of similar stores in Cumberland and Clarksburg. He had acquired considerable property in Fairmont, several pieces, however, he had disposed of recently, his own residence on the Country Club Drive have been disposed of and the family had moved to the Temple apartments. Mr. Comuntizis is survived by his wife, who is also a native of Greece, having come to this country six years ago. A son and a daughter also survive and a brother, D. J. Comuntzis, who was associated with him in business. (The various spellings of the surname were transcribed as shown in the newspaper)
